notwork card is not working with kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4


I have installed a debian woody system that was working fine with kernel kernel 2.2-20.

I have updated to kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4 by apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4.

After updating the network card do not work. ifconfig shows no eth0 :-(

lspci -v shows:
Code:

My booting screen shows up:

I have checked my lilo.conf and it looks fine. After I can't solve this issue I installed debian again from scratch with the bf kernel direktly (at boot prompt I typed bf24). During install, init the network connection failed. So the network is still not available.

Anyone have the same experience? Or - even better - a solution for me to get the network working with the kernel 2.4.

BTW:

lspci -v under kernel 2.2-20 shows:
Code:

Thanks for your assistance. Unfortunately this is not working for me.

Maybe I have make a base mistake.

With the working kernel 2.2.20 uname -a shows
Code:
Linux debtest 2.2.20-idepci #1 Sat Apr 20 12:45:19 EST 2002 i686 unknown
I have updated to kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4 by apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4 But at packages.debian.org I found the following
Quote:
stable (base): Linux kernel image for version 2.4.18 (bf variant) on 386.
2.4.18-5woody8: i386
2.4.18-5: i386
Is this my mistake? It says it is the bf variant on 386. But my machine is a 686! Which kernel-image should I installed? I'm a little confused about the different kernel versions.

If the

Package kernel-image-2.4.18-1-k7
stable (base): Linux kernel image for version 2.4.18 on AMD K7
2.4.18-13.1: i386

the right choice if it is a AMD K7 maschine?

Thanks for assistance.
